Racist,
anti-Semitic, and antigay graffiti appeared on the campus of
a Christian college in Beaver Falls, Pa., for the
second time in about a month, a school official said.
About 11 street signs on Geneva College's campus were
covered in epithets aimed at gays, blacks, Jews, Japanese,
and whites, said Ken Carson, vice president of academic
affairs.

Carson said he
discovered the graffiti while driving to church Sunday.
Six of the 11 signs targeted blacks, he said. Anyone at the
school connected to the graffiti could be expelled,
Carson said.

Cynthia Cook,
director of the college's multiethnic student services,
warned against overpublicizing the graffiti, which she said
might encourage the person who wrote it. "If we keep
drawing attention to it, that's what they want to
see," Cook said. "We're not going to fall into that
pattern of trying to make something of it." (AP)
